Absolutely wonderful atmosphere. We spent a while trying to find a place to enjoy a drink with a view and stumbled upon this establishment. The people are wonderful and made our entire stay in Cinque Terre. They had awesome music on and the food and...drinks were very tasty and promptly served. Would recommend to anyone who wants nice drinks, food, views and wonderful service.More

My wife, family and friends visited this establishment three times during our stay in town, and loved all three. The family staff was SO friendly and accommodating, the food and wine were excellent, and the setting was comfortable and relaxed. Highly recommend Old School! PS...Here’s a photo of the mother who prepared our food and her son who served it. Lovely people!More

The last dinner of our holiday was fun from start to finish. Ilario was a fantastic host and had us in stitches with his great sense of humour and charm. The food was delicious! We shared a bit of everything off the menu. The pictures...speak for themselves. The location is also perfect to frequent after enjoying a magical sunset in Riomaggiore. Highly recommend !More

We chose the perfect spot for our last dinner in the magical Riomaggiore. Ilario was such an entertaining host, full of laughs and entertainment. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the pistachio and mortadella pizza. As for the Limoncillo - perfecto!

What a fantastic dinner at Old School. Ilario kept us entertained the whole evening with lots of stories and party tricks. The food was outstanding, can’t wait to go back for another memorable evening.

No recommendation, bellini wasn’t good, for lasagna I’ve no words, I suppose the cook was drunk. But the view was good

We loved this place, arrived at 4pm for a drink & didn’t leave until after midnight! The staff are so friendly & so efficient, the place was super busy but the service was still excellent. We ordered pizza & it was delicious, probably the tastiest...pizza we had during our 2 weeks in Italy. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

We strolled around Riomaggiore and spontaneously stopped at the Old School. We had actually only planned to drink an Aperol, but then became weak at the menu. What an unexpected surprise! The food was so delicious and the best we tasted in Cinque Terre! Also...the homemade tiramisu - a must! But it wasn't only the food and the view that made the stay special, but also the so nice and interesting conversation with the two guys from the Old School. We felt super comfortable and welcome - would/will definitely come back!More

Great vibe, friendly staff, good food with reasonable prices. Not an extensive menu but what they have is well made. $3 appertivo plate with about 4 nice snacks. Amazing view. One of the more reasonably priced options in Riomaggiore and can compete with the rest.
